Eastern Island

Eastern Island has been completely cleared of ALL TREES, by the US Fish and Wildlife Service at Midway Island. Trees were initially banded, by cutting sections of bark away from the tree. The dead trees were then left standing, without foliage. As display in the photos below, Albatross became snared by the branches of the dead trees. All of Eastern and Sand Islands (along with surrounding waters) are eligible for inclusion into the Register of Historic Landmarks. The US Fish and Wildlife Service is NOT maintaining Eastern Island. All Eastern Island buildings have been demolished.
